Three notebooks, individual sheets with writings and printed material, and three photographs relating primarily to Arthur Hallam. Those items relating to Arthur are a small booklet listing the boys at Putney School "by A. H.

Also present are a small sewn booklet lacking wrappers, containing the manuscript draft of "Palestine, a Poem by Reginald Heber, Commoner of Brazenose College, Oxford. Printed in the Theatre at Oxford June 15th 1803" and a printed poem, "Salix Babylonica" with its translation "The Weeping Willow of Babylon" dated August 1839 inscribed to M.
